Where to See Lavender Fields in Scotland

Full disclosure: these photos are almost two years old now – I didn’t post them at the time for reasons I now can’t recall, but which were probably pretty stupid, tbh (They didn’t fit my Instagram aesthetic at the time? I didn’t like what I was wearing? Who knows…), but as we enter lavender season in this part of the world, I figured it was time to stop gatekeeping this gorgeous Scottish lavender field, and show you some photos, just in case you want to go see it for yourself…

The lavender fields in question are owned by Scottish Lavender Oils, who use the lavender to make perfumes and other products. They’re based in Kinross, in Fife, and as the lavender fields are only open for five weeks of the year, you’ll have to book your visit in advance (and then just hope and pray it’s not pouring with rain on the day…). We visited in 2021, just after the pandemic, and were allowed to just wander around and take photos: I believe you can still do that if you want, but I see from the company’s website that they also offer guided tours, where you can learn more about the distillation process they use to create their lavender oil, as well as just posing with it.

(Yes, I felt stupid running around like that. Yes I did.)

Although the lavender itself is obviously the main attraction here, though, the farm also has some wildflower fields, plus this really quite stunning chamomile lawn, which I spent far too much time in…

It’s an Instagrammer’s dream, basically. If only Instagram was still a “thing”, huh? 

This year the lavender fields are open from July 1st until August 5th, and entrance is £9.99 for adults and £3.99 for children: book your ticket here, then start praying for some Scottish sunshine…
